Always saying, "Studies show" after a question. Not good on following up when given test. She has someone in office call. Doesn't seem to have enough knowledge dealing with older clientele.

caring, understanding and informative

Dr. Desai is wonderful! She takes time to answer and discuss any questions. I love her approach to treating my child- she is not quick to jump to antibiotics. She is very sweet and talkative with the children : )
